    Drag Me to Hell

    You really should see it. It's PG-13, but it's easily one of the most intense horror movies I've seen in a while.

    I agree man, this is Sam Raimi s best work since Army of Darkness. I am seriously traumatized from seeing it, definitely one of the best horror movies of all time. Scary as hell!!!

    finally a horror movie that works with audio and visual effects to create tension and fear instead of just throwing a bunch of gore at you and saying "what do you think we're gonna do next?" IM LOOKING AT YOU SAW AND HOSTEL

    Though it was suprisingly gory for a PG-13 movie.

    And I'm glad they don't just cram in a bunch of CGI shots of the monster every chance they get.

    The ending kicks ass.

    I'd like for them to include Within the Woods, with this movie's DVD release. (Another Sam Raimi flick that was made in 1978.) As for the movie itself, I may be an Evil Dead fan, but I'll check this one out for sure.

    Most fun I've had at a theater since....hell, I can't remember when. Personally, I thought this was MUCH better than ANY of the Evil Deads (including Army of Darkness).

    Just the right amount of camp mixed in with the intense horror (and gore/goo). Gawddamn amazing film. Even a seance for the ages.

    I was a twisted mess at the end, but as the ending credits began creeping up the screen, I just burst out laughing. Both me and my SO could NOT stop laughing - even the folks behind us were laughing. So. much. fun. to be had.

    What was even funnier, was leaving the theater and going out into the bright, sun filled afternoon. Looked just like movie, too (how much of it is breezy sunny days). Made us feel off. Like a good horror film should make you feel.

    A really really good film. I love Raimi's work (although I have always disliked Army of Darkness as his weakest movie, and yes I include Spiderman 3 in that assessment). The only thing that would keep this movie from reaching cult level is there are few really memorable and quoteable lines, which is one of the things that makes a movie really reach that cult level. However, this really shows that Raimi knows how to make us squirm and laugh, and use every trick available to get us right where he wants us. I loved the shadow and sound work!

    Still can't get this film outta my head. And yes, the sound effects/editing were perfection in this.



    And the anvil. OMG, there's an anvil in this movie!

    Actually, I think that Evil Dead 2 is a little bit better, but it is better than Army of Darkness.

    I liked it a whole bunch, but in places it was very remniscent of "Night of the Demon"
